I f you enjoyed reading Roald Dahl's books when you were a bit younger, I think you will love this story about Harry Barton. Poor old Harry has an awful time as a sad little rich boy. His parents are always roaming round the world on holiday and leave him in the care of a beastly nanny who he calls Gestapo Lil, after the Nazi German secret state police. He is not particularly bothered, then, when his parents are killed in an accident, except that he wonders what is to become of him. Alas, he is shipped off to a couple of great aunts in the country. And here the adventure really starts.
When the orphaned Harry is sent to live with his elderly aunts, he gets the shock of his life. His aunts are far from the dull, frail old ladies he's expecting - Harry discovers he's living with a gang of cat-burglars! Now all he has to do is persuade them to let him join in their daring adventures Harry and his "wrinklies" give the terms elderly and senior citizen a whole new meaning. When Harry is orphaned, he is sent to live with two spinster aunts.
